Tori Amos musical shelved by National Theatre
A spokesperson for the National Theatre has denied that the theatre is dropping the production, telling the Guardian that "development is continuing on The Light Princess and we'll announce a new date for the production in due course."
Amos will be spending much of the next several months on tour for her new classical song cycle Night of Hunters, which she says spun out of her work on The Light Princess. "I've been working on the musical for what seems like 5,000 years now," Amos recently told Rolling Stone. "I've learned a lot about motivation of characters and being active instead of passive, and making a narrative come alive."
